@ Meta187: Don't fret too much, you'll wear yourself out. Keep it simple and keep going. I hope everything is cool, man.
These following songs have really helped me recently. I truly believe that sometimes, when your mind decides it wants to be down and depressed, you should please it. To a degree, obviously. In the past few weeks the reminder of being alone has rained down relentlessly and it's worn me out. Luckily for me, I have music; without it, I'd have nothing. So, for the people that don't have that something, just hang on. It gets better.
First off, this song has really hit a chord within:
This song, though...it really picks me up and gives me that stiff-upper-lip-attitude:
Once again, thanks to everyone who's been keeping it going in here.
@Gig: As always a good showing, I listened to The Score more times than should be legal. I'm a big Lykke Li fan from way back as well. Good selections, thanks for the kind words.
@Pat: Cand oiginally broke Bibio in this thread and I was very taken aback, good stuff on the experimental tip.
@DOOM: Ivy-League has got a lot of play since you first posted some of his stuff in here a bit back.
@Nizzo: The DELS was something new, anything feat. Roots Manuva is a win in my book.
@Sauron: New Sleigh Bells is purely addictive and of course Santigold's on point. Noosa was something completely new, smacks a bit of Cut Copy. Mish and I have been listening to that MIA cover all week.
@War: Hi Tack had a bomb ass disco beat with the MJ sample it was pretty infectious. Nice to hear some new Jamiroquai as well.
@Piperka: You're a real talent, as always thanks for sharing your work.
@Ted Bundys Bedsheets: Welcome. a classical piece always levels things out in here.
@Craig: I was pretty nuts about that Gotye song when it first dropped, listened to it quite a bit a month back. Been a while since we heard any Venetian Snares in here so thanks for that.
@Straz: Rebel MC, all day. Rebelution was right on time as well. That Rustie track has sent me on a mission to find more.
@mrpain: ME has always had a pretty decent soundtrack in everty instalment thanks for sharing.
@Sound: pil was something new, very catchy.
@Mockage: I actually got to see Filter in one of their first live concerts in Florida, the lead singer used to be in NIN and a bit of that still echoes in his work. That Sole joint was def on point.
@Cand: have to really agree with you on Groundation, top notch indeed.
@Cheat: Love the Lupe, Glasper colab, big Fiasco fan.
@Dreams: That Azaelia Banks really picked it up, chick's got immaculate flow. Love the low whistle going on in the backgound. Bondax really caught my ear with the classic "Some Day" sample as well. Framework was dreamy and fantastic. Analogue Monsta was f*cking brilliant, the chorus sounded like old school 90's R&B or something. Going to have to check out a bit more from BBNG as well.
@Ats: As always, thanks for sharing.
@Slamwich: Steve Martin is my hero.
@Wizard: Welcome back, Curtis Mayfield is a sure bet.
@meta: Great tunes but no one gives two sh*tes about your personal problems so please refrain from mentioning them, it scares away the fishes.
Kind of funky, kind of laid back. Nice blend.
Another crazy well done MIA cover.
Some of that throwback Motown sensibility. If this doesn't make you want to get up and do the Snoopy dance you are missing a crucial piece of yourself.

@meta: Sorry to hear that man, I hope everything turns out for the better.
I've not been doing my usual listen-to-one-genre at a time routine of late, which has been quite odd but refreshing. I find I'm listening to music now to reflect my mood rather than set it.
Much better than the Audiojack original for me, got rinsed prior to going out on Friday and Saturday.
Been re-discovering my love of English hip-hop, and you don't have to look much further than Roots to see true skill on display. One of my all-time favourite music videos as well.
Something fairly different from my usual submission, but I've been raised to absolutely adore Irish folk music. I've seen The Pogues play live more times than I can remember, and they're truly the most energetic, floor-filling act I've ever seen. They blow any rave or dance mogul out of the water.

@ Mockage: Thanks for sharing that M83 track, man. I'd never heard it before and it really took me by surprise. Absolutely beautiful song. Quite possibly one of my most favourite chill-out tracks I've heard.
Here's something I heard on House M.D. the other day. It's so smooth it makes silk look like sandpaper.
Long time since I've visited this topic, which is a shame really, since many of my favourite tracks have come from this very topic. This was the main topic I visited when I was having a joint and wanted something good to chill to.
Anyway, only a couple of submissions this time...a couple of tracks that I like to relax too.
Heard this on Radio 1 a while back, and it just hit the spot perfectly. Checked out a few of his other tracks, but they haven't had the same effect on me as this track has.
Spark up and enjoy.
Got some more to come, but it's late and my internet is playing up at the moment.
@Meta; How do I go about getting a regular playlist PM, such as the one I got when I last asked? As I said, this topic has provided some excellent tracks, and wouldn't mind a list of them.
@DreamsLieHere: My Spanish friend just introduced me to Lone the other day. Nice.
Here's a haunting and beautiful song, sung by MCA (Adam Yauch)
What's pleasing to the eye In the delusion of my sight Is not what I find when I reach into the light I have lost my mind I'm walking through time Deluded as the next guy Pretending and hoping to find That distant peace of mind
I don't know Who does know There is no Where to go
It's not so simple as I try to wish But then again what is? There is no other worthy quest So on I go
I don't know Who does know There is no Where to go[/youtube]
@Mockage: I can't say enough good things about M83. Their tracks have been on steady rotation in our household since earlier in the year.
@mrpain: I like the Ting Tings but that Metric, Collect Call was a real stand out for me.
@Ats: I'd like to see you take something out of these Igorrr tracks and mix them into your own work, that'd be interesting to hear.
@Gig: House opens with Massive Attack's Teardrop so it wins a bit already.
@Dreams: Let me just say that "Snarky Puppy" is an awesome name.
@Butters: That Michael Kiwanuka was very soulful.
@Sound: A terrible loss, end of an era to be sure. That song always made me think of some of Scott Weiland's more down tempo solo work.
@Zak: It's been a while good to see you back in here.
I think it was Sauron who first broke Young Wonder in here a while back. Going back and listening to it more this last week the tracks are really addictive. This one in particular won me over with it's Avalanches - Since I Left You sample.
An alien broadcast, soulful and abstract.
Ethereal and intricate, easy on the ears but compelling.

Mindblowing stuff from Kona Triangle (Lone + Beaver & Krause)'s smashing 2009 debut Sing a New Sapling Into Existence.
Dreamy folk by Swedish outfit Fredrik.
One of the more popular (and one of my favourite!) artists to come out of the emergence of chillwave, here's Toro y Moi with a downright groovy cover of 1985's R&B hit 'Saturday Love' from Cherrelle and Alexander O'Neal.
Some great tracks guys. The Airhead track Meta was mental but enjoyable. The 3rd video is great. Really nice shots in it. Nice music too. @DreamsLieHere: Currently listening Long Mountain. Never heard of Kona Triangle, thanks.
Might have posted this before but I'll post some new stuff. This is from an young lad in my country think he would have been 18 or 19 making the first track. I've been to see him twice. Really nice stuff. Cosmic, retro, made with hardware and love.
Been a while since I poked my head in here, just thought I'd comment on some stuff from this page and the previous.
@Craig: I love me some Jaguar Skills. Oddly enough I first heard him on the Chris Moyles Show on R1 of all places. Since then I've followed all the other stuff he's done for Radio 1 (the credible half, after 7pm). The 30 Years of Hip Hopmix was just insane. He did a game-music themed thing as well a while back, which I think is "acquirable" in certain parts of the internet. His "Spookalicious" halloween mix is one of my favourites though; great, cheesey fun:
@meta: Love that Bad Girls cover. Always nice to hear something you love picked up and thrown in a completely different direction. Seriously can't wait for Matangi this summer (hopefully, no release set yet). Good luck withwhatever life's throwing at you too
@mrpain: Really enjoying the new stuff from the Ting Tings, not sure much of it matches up to Hang It Up though, I seriously dig that sh*t.
Anyway, here's something interesting I recently saw on reddit. It's not exactly outstanding in terms of actual musical quality, but seeing these sorts of things in action, and the control both of your voice and the equipment needed, is kind of mesmerising.
E: Woops, a few hours later and I realise I copy/pasted the wrong thing in the YT tags.
